at the same time scaring chrysler workers in the very same state with a completely false ad that they're about to lose their jobs? >> well, you know, martin, in times of trouble like this and times of chaos, it's nice to know there are some things you can rely on, right? like fox news to make light of the president in this awful way, mitt romney to be disingenuous and use anything for a political opportunity. so in that sense, i guess like it's nice and comforting -- >> almost reassuring that the world hasn't changed. >> exactly. so nothing has changed, right. mitt romney is still mitt romney or at least the mitt romney that's always kind of changeable. i found that sort of fake relief rally, whatever it is, to be pretty offensive and wrong-headed. the red cross is put in this awkward position of saying we don't need canned goods, thank you very much, mr. 1950s. you know, like we need money, we need people to donate blood. and i think that sort of is mitt romney sort of small as it were, right? like to not only do something so craven but to do it in a way that's not even helpful on a small sca
worst. and chrysler's ceo said it's simply not true. we know the truth, mitt. >> that's exactly what i said. the headline you read which is let detroit go bankrupt. >> when romney airs these grossly false ads, it opens up the door obviously for the obama campaign to hit back hard. in the state of florida it actually gets worse. romney desperately needs to win the state of florida and he is running a spanish language ad meant to stoke the fears of cuban-americans. the ad tries to connect president obama to venezuelan president hugo chavez and fidel castro. "the miami herald" reports the romney campaign would not furnish the ad despite repeated requests. in other words, the ad is so outrageous, the romney campaign tried to slip it under the radar. obviously the strategy is backfiring. let's turn to annette taddeo, member of the miami-dade democratic party. annette, great to have you with us tonight. i keep saying the bread basket to victory for president obama is going to be south florida. turnout is to important. but now this spanish language ad that's out, what is this doing to stroke
of general motors and chrysler which in all likelihood would have been liquidated had his administration not kept them above water with a government-led rescue in 2009 is pretty popular in ohio. popularity is an obstacle to mitt romney who opposed a key part of the rescue when initiated by the bush administration and now finds himself with a stubborn polling deficit in a state he more or less has to win to win the presidency. so, the romney campaign has e a escalated their attempts to rewrite the history of the auto rescue and are now simply making things up about the current auto industry that exists today. they claim that president obama sold chrysler to italians who plan to build jeeps in china. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama, fact checkers confirm his attacks on mitt romney are false. the truth? mitt romney has a plan to help the auto industry. he's supported by lee iacocca and "the detroit news." obama took gm into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> i'm mitt r
that chrysler has plainly said is untrue. >> this morning before he left florida and went back to washington, he said, you know, of all the things governor romney has said, that probably hurts my feelings the most. he said you know, i never had any money when i was a kid. and the first new car i ever owned i was 30 years old and it was a jeep. i would never move jeep to china. now it turns out that jeep is reopening in china because they made so much money here they can afford to do it and they are going on with their plans here. they put out a statement today saying it was the biggest load of bull in the world that they would ever consider shutting down their american operations. they are roaring in america thanks to people like the people of ohio. >> he's running an ad in this state saying that, saying that president obama made the companies go bankrupt is now -- gave the industry the italian who's are selling it to the chinese. whoa. whoa. as we say in my faith, bless me father for i have sinned. i mean what are you talking about? i have never seen anything like that. it's an absolutely paten
is swinging against the add that says in part, quote sold chrysler to the italians who are going to build deep in ki china. now them is fighting words when you are campaigning in ohio. he is challenging the facts in that add. the words are are literally correct but mid leading. in the auto bail out president obama allowed for the company fial which is owned by the italians to buy chrysler. so that part is true. but, they are now making some jeeps in china for the chinese markets. the adds make it seem as though they ar are taking american job and moving them to china. the ceo of the company has said that is not true. bottom line, it shows how much that auto bail out helps president obama with the voters in ohio and iowa. among non college white men in those states is higher than the other states anderson. >> hum, hinting. appreciate that. i spoke about that earlier. what is your biggest priority right now? >> well, getting power back up. i think we have done a good job on search and rescue. there may be elements of that. but the national guard has done a great job. getting lights on. changes p
. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. >> political contributor john avalon is joining us from youngstown, ohio. john, i understand that, first of all, there has been some pushback from the auto industry execs over the ad. how is this playing out? >> suzanne, it is fascinating. the auto industry here is a political issue, it is a personal issue, it is a pocketbook issue. it is very much a central focus of the debate. we have spoken to senators on both democrat and republican sides of the aisle, senator rob portman and sherrod brown about this ad. take a listen. >> i say it is the most disingenuous ad i've ever seen. they know better. they know the auto rescue worked. they know that ohio reasons connected directly or indirectly to the auto rescue and they know that governor romney and my opponent's opposition to the auto rescue, they're trying to crowd the issue and it is pretty outrageous. >> it is their game to the extent it is reported in the media and that's all they have said, there is reports this could happ
